It's April Fool's Day, and the White House is having a little fun with some help from Kid President.
The video starts with a shot of the White House briefing room. Kid President -- aka Robby Novak, a 9-year-old Tennessee resident and viral video maker -- rises from behind the podium.
"April Fools on all y'all," he announces. "I'm Kid President and I hope everyone has an awesome day. It's everybody's duty to give the world a reason to dance. I made it to the White House! I'm here! Peace." Then he saunters out of the room, only to get stuck in the doorway. After the video ends, an outtake shows Kid President messing with some presidential technology.
Kid President also helped the White House announce this year's Easter Egg Roll and is a special guest at today's event. The Post interviewed Kid President back in October, when he explained that if he was elected, his first act as president would be to "throw a big dance party."
